Some times last year, there was the Escobar Fold smartphone which basically was a gold foil wrapped up Galaxy Fold device sold for about US$799, now the “Company” wants to sell another brand of smartphone the iPhone 11 Pro.
The initial story was unveiled by YouTuber Marques Brownlee who pointed out that the Escobar Inc had repackaged the Galaxy Fold device which were never delivered to buyers just as he lost his money when he first tried making the purchase. The Escobar Inc now wants to sell refurbished iPhone 11 pros for US”499 and the company is also coming clean about its intentions to make Robert Escobar “the overstock kings-pins”.
During an announcement yesterday, the company said it will be selling a limited-run of “formerly damaged” iPhone 11 Pros with 256GB. The devices are said to have been repaired and “gold-plated” though the gold-plate might just be aluminum foils wrapped around the devices just as with the Escobar Fold 2.
Allegedly, the phones will ship with original Apple accessories, “such as the cable, charger and headphones.” Escobar Inc has engraved its logo on the back, and if the phone actually arrives, it will come in a “luxury wooden box.”
“This is my way of fighting Apple, I sell their phones at a lower price and mine are gold-plated with nice girls showing them off. Apple can never do that,” Roberto Escobar said in a (lewd) statement — the company’s YouTube channel is full of women in lingerie holding and smashing smartphones. Apparently Escobar has also filed a lawsuit against Apple seeking $2.6 billion.

What it all really comes down to is this: “Our goal is to uphold Mr. Escobar’s dreams of becoming the overstock king-pin and this is one step towards that direction,” said Escobar Inc. CEO Olof Gustafsson.
The dubious ways by which the company has been operating might mean you shouldn’t go for this kind of deal because US$499 can get you a better iPhone SE which is new or just head to a reputable store like Amazon which has customer support team in place.
